    Sweet Summer Sushi

    The Ayurveda Experience August 27, 2013

    This wonderful meal serves four. Prepare all vegetables in advance of cooking. Serve with nori and sesame seeds as an extra treat! Ume plum paste is a lovely addition as well. Ume plum paste is a naturally fermented food to be consumed in small quantities such as 1/8 tsp or less per person. The ume paste adds salty and sour tastes to the meal.

    Ingredients

    • Cucumber & shredded carrot
    • Kale & french green beans
    • White basmati rice with cashews
    • Nori sheets
    • Sesame seeds
    • Avocado slices

    Vegetables

    • 2 medium cucumbers peeled and seeds removed  (Cut in strips lengthwise to easily remove seeds. This will aid in the digestion of the vegetable as humans can’t digest the seeds.)
    • 2 medium carrots shredded (If organic there is no need to peel! If it’s not organic then definitely peel since it is a root vegetable and directly exposed to chemicals in the soil.)
    • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
    • 1/2 tsp mineral salt
    • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
    • 1/8 – 1/4 tsp black pepper

    Heat oil in saucepan and add spices, simmering until aroma comes up. Add the cucumber and stir to coat with the spices. Cook 1 minute and then add the shredded carrots and about 1/2 cup water. Stir and simmer for 2-5 minutes with lid on and then remove from heat for 2-3 minutes before serving.

    • 1 medium bunch of curly kale cut into thin slices
    • 1/2 lb of french green beans
    • 2 tbsp ghee or coconut oil
    • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
    • 1/2 tsp mineral salt
    • 1/2 tsp grated or powder turmeric
    • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds

    Heat oil in saucepan or pot and add spices, simmering until the aroma comes up. Add green beans and stir to coat with the spices. Cook 2-3 minutes on simmer then add kale and 1/2-1 cup water. Stir and cover. Simmer for 3 -5 minutes until color change.

    Grain

    • 1 1/4 cup white basmati rice
    • 1/2 cup chopped raw cashews (wonderful when cooked, toxic when raw)
    • 1 tbsp ghee
    • 1/2 tsp mineral salt

    Combine in pot or rice cooker and cook until rice is soft.
